The Caribbean Broadcasting Union’s 47th Annual General Assembly takes place this coming Oct. 24–27, in Havana, Cuba.
Highlighted AGA events include a “Media Innovation and Transformation” forum presented by Jimi Matthews, CEO of the South African Broadcasting Corp., as well as a seminar on the media’s role in disaster risk presented by members of Caribbean Disaster and Emergency Management Agency.
Other highlighted events are a feature on digital radio standards put on by Ruxandra Obreja, chair of Digital Radio Mondiale and half-day seminar on “Doing Business in Cuba.”
In addition, the DRM Consortium has announced that during the event it will be bringing the first live digital radio signal transmission to Cuba, the Caribbean region and parts of northern Latin America, and even as far north as Florida.
